'Operation Suck Less'
Andrew Gelman offers a nice corrective to the discussions of "Operation Gringo": the question of whether or not the GOP can win the electoral college even if their support among Hispanic voters erodes further. Gelman points out that one way to achieve this is to become generally more popular such that their baseline level of support, pre-Gringo, would be higher. Simply presenting a more diverse public face and coming up with an economic policy more imaginative than upper income tax brackets might be a good start.
